Dutch Master Flower Love

It’s true that art can imitate itself.  With the recent movement of looser, more organic flower arrangements, it’s hard not to see a comparison to the classic Dutch Master Paintings movement from the 17th century.  A little art history lesson for today’s post…this artistic movement took place during and after the Eighty Years War for Dutch independence.  Artist began exploring new ways to create texture and focused on many still life subjects, especially of beautiful floral arrangements.  Many modern day florist have been inspired by these gorgeous pieces of art and you can see some correlation in their work.  We’re not complaining a bit!
